In Kingdom Come: Experimental Shorts Program
The works in this shorts program speculate on the possibilities of other worlds, where our sense of control and comprehension of the world around us is suspended and has given way to selflessness and delusion. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Images Festival programmer Faraz Anoushahpour.
* In Kingdom Come was first screened during the 2016 Images Festival in Toronto, Canada, April 14 – 23, 2016
